Overview

When it comes to shore diving, muck diving or just plain diving, the Blue Heron Bridge is often hailed as the best in the Americas. A great variety of life, easy shore entry and months of tropical warm water from late spring until late fall makes this a great place to dive. As the only dive shop located at the bridge inside Phil Foster Park, Blue Heron Bridge Scuba is uniquely placed to serve the needs of the dive community.

Blue Heron Bridge is a surprisingly good dive for being in at most 20 feet of water. This scuba shop is by far the most convenient for getting gear if you don't have yours with you. They were really helpful to get us fitted and...More

This is a public place. You can bring you own. Before you go, download the map on-line so you will know where to swim- and were to not swim. (It is adjacent to a channel with boats).
